Flash of blue; bright as the sky,
flutters quickly past, attracting my eyes.
A blue bird settles into my tree of orange leaves,
seconds later another appears, is it my eyes sight deceives?
Winter is upon us; spring far away,
yet this winged pair seem determined to stay!
Spots of blue amongst fall features;
exposed against the landscape are these two creatures.
Blue birds of happiness, why do you appear?
Do you foretell of good news in the upcoming year?
The reason you come; this I don’t know;
Your presence offers hope; replacing sorrow!
